CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Navigant (NYSE: NCI) announced today its commitment to setting science-based emissions reduction targets through the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).
Through its commitment to SBTi, Navigant joins other leading companies that agree to set emissions reduction targets in line with climate science. Navigant has also committed to purchasing 100% renewable energy for its offices around the world.
“The commitments we are making to our sustainability strategy are not only good for our communities and our world, they are also of great importance to all of our stakeholders – employees, recruits, clients, and shareholders,” said Julie Howard, Navigant chairman and CEO.
Navigant is among more than 500 companies globally that are taking science-based climate action. The company also was instrumental in developing the Sectoral Decarbonization Approach (SDA) for the SBTi and serves as a member of the organization’s Technical Advisory Group.
